Are you taking advantage?

Are you taking advantage?

if your anything like me I love to save a few dollars but you’re doing yourself a disservice if you’re not taking advantage of the tax deductions allowed for services we are already paying.

What’s up bloggers and bloggetts, it’s your girl you know who with another you know what for your reading pleasure.

I’m sure your asking yourself what I mean when I asked

Are you taking advantage?

I wrote today’s post because it is very near and dear to me. Let me give you a little background history before we jump into today’s topic.

As a young child I was told to go to school and get a good education, go to college and get a good job and oh yeah stay there until your 65 and then retire. SOUNDS GOOD RIGHT…NOT but for most of us this is not our reality nor can we afford to live off our retirement after giving that company our blood, sweat and tears.

I discovered early on that I hated working for someone else. I didn’t like someone telling me when i could come and go but like many of us we stay because we need to pay the bills. We need to have a roof over our heads, a little food and some clothes on our backs.

I wasn’t really told to explore your passions and turn them into a viable business.

YOUR JOB AND THE 9-5 MENTALITY

For most people they feel that having a 9-5 means a guaranteed check and that one source of income is more than enough for everyday living and retirement. And to most they forget that they can be fired at anytime just because.

Now let me begin by saying that there is nothing wrong with working a 9-5. Some people are truly living out their passion and making the money they desire. They have more than enough money for the rent/mortgage, lights, phone and the list goes on but let me ask you a question?

Do you have the TIME FREEDOM you desire to live a true and fulfilled life? Many will say NO to this important question and that can be a problem.

Are you able to take that trip when you want?

Can you make your child’s event at  school during the day?

A lot of the time we think we are living the life we desire because we have that dream job and making the money but we have NO TIME. This is one major key factor that get’s left out of the equation.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Now for a lot of people this is a scary word…WHY because the thought of doing it all on your own is SCARY AS HELL.

Entrepreneurship means no guarantees, entrepreneurship means it’s all on you. entrepreneurship means there is no one to take the fall but you.

The one difference between your 9-5 and entrepreneurship is that they only one who can fire you is YOU. However if you quit on you, you don’t live or eat so quitting is NEVER AN OPTION!

One of the things I discovered along my journey to entrepreneurship are the many hills and valleys you will encounter. There will be several days you will want to quit and give up however this is never an option if your goal is to live the life you desire with time freedom added into the equation.

As entrepreneurs we are now able to take advantage.

Let me ask you a few questions?

Do you pay rent/mortgage?

How about lights?

Do you pay for heat/gas for your home?

Do you have a cellphone?

Do you own a car?

Do you buy gas for your car?

Do you repair your car?

Do you ever travel?

Have you brought a new computer?

All these expenses and many more can now be a WRITE OFF.

Now, I could go on and on with this list however I think your starting to get the point. Every month we pay these expenses but as an employee we reap none of the benefits.however as a home based business owner you can now take advantage of the benefits. These everyday expenses have now became a tax deduction.

Now understand I’m not a tax consultant but I am a business owner who takes advantages of all the benefits. My question is   WHY AREN’T YOU?

YOUR JOB + ENTREPRENEURSHIP = WIN WIN

You can have the best of both worlds by simply getting yourself a home based business while employed and take advantage of all that is afforded to you. I think this is the best way to fuel your passions. Have that 9-5 to pay your everyday expenses and build your business on the side. As your business grows then you can decide if you wish to stay or walk away and live the lifestyle you desire

Let no one tell you that you can’t have it all because it’s absolutely possible.

I now have the time to drop my son off at school every morning, go to school functions during the day, take vacations when I want and just enjoy family.

 

Me and the boy at a baseball game

 

Me and the boy in NY to see The Color Purple

 

Me and the boy at the scooper bowl today.

 

 

 

 

Well that’s all I have for today my friends. I hope you got some value from today’s post. Don’t forget to L/S/C and remember

It’s time to take advantage

 

Wishing you all Peace, Blessings and Prosperity                                                                                                                                 Shawne

My Life, My Job, My Career: How 4 Simple Affiliate Marketing Tips Helped Me Succeed

What’s up bloggers and bloggetts, it’s your girl you know who with another you know what for your reading pleasure. I want to thank in you advance for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read the words I have prepared for you today.

My Life, My Job, My Career: How 4 Simple Affiliate Marketing Tips Helped Me Succeed

When it comes to a successful marketing plan, there is no greater tool for converting potential prospects into long term clients than developing a relationship with each of your prospects. You may be able to offer potential business prospects the best quality products and service, but unless they see you as something other than an impersonal web page or catalog, there is little else to keep them loyal when another clever advertising campaign comes along.

So, does this mean you have to become best friends with every new prospect you meet? of course not. If you tried, you’d not only come off as insincere, you’d never have time to get any real business done. The point here is to try to convey to your prospects that you see them as real people, and not just merely another cha-ching in your cash register. Everyone likes to feel that they matter, and this is what you will try to establish by developing a relationship with each of your prospects.

Check out these 4 Affiliate Marketing Tips for building better relationships with your prospects and better success in your business. both online and off.

Present Yourself At Your Personal Best Both In Person And On The Web

No matter how rough of a work week you’ve had, when it’s time to meet with a prospective client, don’t skimp on the hygiene. Be sure you are perfectly groomed, and that your clothes are business-like, clean and pressed. Likewise for your vehicle. Be sure it is clean and looks well cared for. Remember, first impressions are the most important of all. You need to impress a potential client that the company you are representing is completely on the ball. Even though you will most likely be working out of your home, you never know who might stop by or who you might run into. Look successful!

Does your website look professional? You don’t need green and hot pink flashing lettering to get a prospect’s attention. Your website should instill a friendly one-on-one tone. Make sure your website is clean, easy to navigate for even the newest web browsers and really spells out what you’re selling. Invite a dialogue with prospects and answer them in a friendly, positive tone as promptly as possible. Inspiring confidence is the first step to developing a relationship with each of your prospects.

 

Establish Common Ground

The easiest way to turn off a prospect is to jump right into the hard sale, how many  ways can you say turn off. Not only that it will hamper developing a relationship with each of your prospects. When you first meet a potential new client, don’t be afraid to make some small talk to draw them out a little.

This doesn’t mean that you should go into the week’s weather report detail by detail. Again, you would come off as insincere. But if you happen to notice a family photo on your prospect’s desk or mantel, don’t be afraid to ask some polite questions about how the children are, and share a little relative info on your own children if you have them. Don’t fabricate facts, honesty is always the best policy. Ask a few lightweight questions about anything your prospect brings up that actually interest you. This way you won’t have to strain to have an actual conversation that is about more than just what you’d like to sell him.

Selling on the web is little harder, you don’t have a physical presence. Most of your correspondence will be through e-mails and the occasional phone call. Words mean things, make yours count. Once again, be friendly in your responses, make them remember you. Answer any questions or concerns they might have about joining your affiliate program and then throw in something a little more personal. It can be that you were watching one foot of snow fall while you answered this e-mail, you just got back from a vacation or you’re about to take one to XYZ place (if the prospect has been there, they’ll let you know- people love to share travel stories), or just drop in a tidbit of your day and tell them you’ve had one of those “Calgon take me away kind of days!”. Everyone can relate to a stressful day.

The key to developing an actual relationship with each of your prospects is to find some common ground that will help establish an immediate rapport between the two of you.

 

Soft Selling and Listening

As mentioned before, a hard sell will turn off many potential prospects. Far better to begin your sales pitch by inquiring about your prospect’s needs. Give him a chance to tell you his own thoughts about what questions he has about your affiliate marketing program. People like to feel that someone is willing to listen to them. Businesses don’t listen, people do.

This technique will actually help you to pinpoint the items you should be presenting first, and is indispensable to developing a relationship with each of your prospects. Your potential customer will become more relaxed with you when he realizes you are not ready to pounce from the word go.

 

Follow Up After The Sale

If you’re fortunate enough to have made a good first impression and made the initial sale, your follow up is crucial. If you don’t want to leave your new client feeling like a bride left at the alter, then within one week, send him a personal note of thanks for the opportunity to do business with him, and reiterate that you are always available to answer his questions or concerns. Then be available if he does happen to call or e-mail. If you’re not in the office, then return his message immediately. This lets your new client know you still care about him after he has joined your affiliate marketing network.

Developing a relationship with each of your prospects is impossible without this kind of personal care after the sale. You are trying to establish yourself in your client’s eyes as not merely a sales person with a great affiliate marketing program, but a real person, and a darn nice one to boot.

 

Side Benefits For You:

There are other benefits to developing a relationship with each of your prospects. Sometimes something goes wrong and it’s out of your hands to bring a quick resolution to your client’s problem. Perhaps there is an unavoidable delay in shipping, or a computer glitch is making everything run late. If you’ve established a friendly trust between the two of you, your client is far more likely to stand by you during the difficulty if you’ve been there for him all along.

You’ll also find that it’s actually far more pleasant doing business with someone you’ve come to know a little. Developing a relationship with each of your prospects will do that for you, and you’ll come to love your job that much more.

In a world full of impersonal online business transactions, there really is no substitute for developing a relationship with each of your prospects if you want to win and maintain their customer loyalty with your affiliate marketing program.
